    Anyone know how to Remove or Hide the Recycle Bin from the destop without hiding any of the other icons?

    Thanks

    User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Desktop > double click "Remove Recycle Bin From Desktop" on the right, then set to "enabled" and click OK

    Go to
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\NonEnum
    add a dword {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} and set it equal to 1

    There's an option in TweakUI to choose which desktop icons you want to be displayed.
